Thiago Alcantara Suffers Calf Injury

Liverpool Spanish midfielder Thiago Alcantara has sustained a calf injury that will take him out of the field of play for at least two weeks. The 30-year-old picked up the injury during their Saturday’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, where Sadio Mane scored his 100th goal for Liverpool. Liverpool will play Norwich City in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday before a league trip to Brentford on Saturday.

Thiago Alcantara Ruled out Due to Calf Injury

Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders said: “I can’t say now how long it will take, but not Tuesday and not the weekend.” “Let’s get the scan results back, and we have a proper diagnosis.” “A shame as well because he was taking the game [against Palace] by the hand. He was a proper playmaker, in my opinion. A shame that we miss him.”

He will again be absent at Norwich, while forward Roberto Firmino has resumed training after missing three matches with a hamstring injury.
